Worm eggs per gram (EPG) that sig­nal a par­a­site load need­ing treat­ment. Fe­cal egg counts are the key to a de­worm­ing strat­egy that max­i­mizes ef­fec­tive­ness while min­i­miz­ing par­a­site re­sis­tance. A good ap­proach is to check fe­cal egg counts on all your horses be­fore de­worm­ing, then do a fol­low-up check—and ad­di­tional de­worm­ing if needed—on any “high shed­ders” (horses with pre-de­worm­ing counts of over 500 EPG).
